Moyes: We deserved dramatic win

Published Add your comment

Everton manager David Moyes felt justice was done for his persevering side after they scored twice in the dying moments to beat Tottenham 2-1 at Goodison Park.

Trailing to Clint Dempsey's deflected shot, Steven Pienaar and Nikica Jelavic scored within 88 seconds of each other in the 90th minute and added time respectively to secure a deserved victory. Moyes felt his side were well worth the victory, having dominated throughout and been denied what he though was a penalty for handball late in the first half.

"It is as good a finish as we've had," Moyes said. "We've had a few like that where we've lost and felt low so we were due one. I remember a season where we used to score late goals and win games 1-0 but recently it has not been the case."
